Hi! my name is Floor and I'm a dutch embroidery artist with a passion for digital marketing. I started with embroidery in 2016 and never stopped. When I was new in embroidery, I always was on the lookout for tutorials about needle painting and couldn't find much, so I'm happy to share my knowledge with you. I will go over every step so you can stitch along with me.
